A DOMESTIC fire broke out in a house in Colne in the early hours of this morning, caused by a grill pan being left on in the kitchen.

Two fire engines arrived at the Alkincoats Road property at around 1.20am after being alerted to the danger.

Firefighters then used two breathing apparatuses and a positive ventilation fan to extinguish the blaze and were at the scene for approximately 25 minutes.

Fortunately no casualties were reported.
